Subject: A little surefire material goes a long way....
Jack presented variations of this episode at the end of the year, through the early '60s. Later ones were filmed, with Mel Blanc usually appearing as a man of dubious talent, with a ridiculous name to match. The "Landrews Sisters" routine was originally done by Jack as part of his stage shows in the 1930's {then known as the "Coswell Sisters", and by the late '60s, the "Smothers Sisters"}, eventually done on radio, and later a part of his Las Vegas engagements (during this period, Iris Adrian often played the "sarcastic one"). The "wrestler demonstration" was also a part of Jack's stage shows in the '30s, and was previously staged on one of his TV shows several seasons earlier [here, Leon Lontoc is the one who gets "laid out" at the end].

Subject: best episode
I think this is Jack at his best. Not a politically correct episode AT ALL, but howlingly funny. Jack holds a talent show--Mel Blanc does what he does best and three-sister singing act gives Jack all the classic foils for great comedy.
